Welcome to Genoa Area Local Schools
The attached "invoice" below notes the year-to-year charges deducted from our district's State funding by the Ohio Department of Education that has been used to fund Charter/Community schools since their inception in 1999. Total cost to local taxpayers since inception: $1,964,075.54.
You may have noticed that we are no longer working with Market Day, that is because they stopped delivery to our school, so in an effort to still provide the community with some values and AWESOME food, we have joined the Schwan's Cares campaign.
Besides giving money back to the school, one of the major benefits of Schwan's is that they deliver RIGHT TO YOUR DOOR, and ANYONE can join to support our campaign, no matter where they live!!! So please spread the word because in our first 45 days we have the best opportunity to raise money for the schools!

I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself to the Genoa Schools’ community. My name is Mike Ferguson and I come to you with 30 years of experience in education. I have been everything from a substitute teacher to a high school English teacher, coach, bus driver and for the last 20 years, an administrator.
My wife Meghan and I have four grown children (two still in college) and we look forward to becoming a part of the Genoa community. My philosophy of education revolves around the belief that all students have the capacity to learn and it is our job to help them tap into their potential and transform it into knowledge and skills that will prepare them for the challenges of the 21st century.
My goal(s) for the district is to continue the strong traditions that have made Genoa a great place to send your children while at the same time improving those areas that will ensure all of our students have the tools necessary to be successful in whatever path they choose. I am ready to get started and look forward to becoming an integral part of the continued success of the Genoa Area Local School District.
